A couple years back, audiences were reintroduced to the world of Westworld to the HBO original series of the same name. The show was sort of a dark take on, “What would happen if people can pay for a wild west experience?”

Of course, a part of this whole experience lies in the look of the world — the production design and set decoration. Without that to sell you on the world, you have nothing, right? In a new behind-the-scenes video from HBO, we get an in-depth look at what goes into making this world — both inside and out of Westworld proper. In the video, set decorator Julie Ochipinti discussed what they aim for when making these sets.

“You want people to come on set and not know where the set ends and where it began. A lot of people show up and are like, ‘Oh, you just found this place, and it happened to look like this,’ and you know it’s completely all 100 percent from us. We built the whole world.”

Ochipinti also went on to tease some “weird sh**” that can’t be picked up from a robot store. In order to meet this challenge, she found herself going to airplane graveyards for spare parts.

It’s all pretty cool and helps cement how much care goes into the show, and Ochipinti even highlights just how abnormal of a show Westworld is in this regard.
